These are a few of my favorite things
Riding the cable cars for no apparent reason, except that you can buy an all day pass for $11.
The birthplace of Irish coffee. (Hey, it's not any more touristy than cable cars.)
Seeing the unexpected.
Ice skating in the middle of the City. Lasko trivia: Nico and I own our own ice skates. This might only sound unusual to my local readers . (Note: Owning your own ice skates becomes a bit of a chore, as you find yourself dragging them on vacations where you think there might be an ice skating rink. Ice skates are heavy.)
